Sparkhouse Family is pleased to announce the acquisition of The Very Best Story Ever Told for publication in Fall 2018. A poem about the Gospel reinforced with American Sign Language, The Very Best Story Ever Told helps young children understand the story of Jesus’ life in a whole new way.
The Very Best Story Ever Told by Robin Currie
Description: The Very Best Story Ever Told is an interactive and engaging way for children (and adults!) to remember and retell the Gospel story—from God’s love for the world to Jesus’ life to the Spirit surrounding us today. Each line of the poem has a brief story about Jesus and important words are reinforced with American Sign Language to engage the whole person. As the poem builds upon itself, children will be able to memorize and repeat this age-appropriate Gospel story to others.
